WHITE LIES & WHITE LIKE THE MOON -- Celebrating Women's History Month
CELEBRATING WOMEN'S MONTH 2016:
STORIES OF COLORISM: WHITE LIES & WHITE LIKE THE MOON
Sunday, March 27th @ 4PM
Paraiti is the healer and midwife of her rural, tribal people she believes in life. But new laws are in force prohibiting unlicensed healers. She gets approached by Maraea, the servant of a wealthy woman, Rebecca, who seeks her knowledge and assistance in order to hide a secret which could destroy Rebeccas position in European settler society.
(Dir. Dana Rotberg, 2014, New Zealand, Drama, Maori, English, English subt.)
White Like the Moon
A Mexican-American girl struggles to keep her identity when her mother forces her to bleach her skin. White Like the Moon is a revealing film about a dilemma not very well known outside Latino communities; that of the myth of the light skin superiority in Indigenous and Indigenous descendant communities.
(Dir. Marina Gonzales Palmier, 2001, USA, 23 min, Short Drama in English)
